Sunday 8th October 2023 – Al Massira- Breakfast Church

Sorry – these notices were sent last Friday – but didn’t publish.  Here they are – but a bit late!!

This week we are gathering together at 10:30am at St Paul’s Church for Breakfast Church where we will be looking at the first session of the Al Massira course.

We’re sorry- this is the week there is no livestream of the service.

Notices

(To get notices on this page please email notices@bradfordwest.church  – we can’t promise to put all on – but will do our best!)

Al Massira – 6th & 7th of October

Al Massira is a course where participants are invited on a journey to discover the basics of the the Christian faith – it is particularly useful for those from a Muslim background.  We are hosting this here in our Parish.  More Information found here.

Follow Me Follow On

In October we are starting a new sermon series and a whole Parish focus on our discipleship – what did Jesus mean by ‘Follow me’ and how can we do that in 2023?  To aid us in our thinking we will start a new zoom discussion group.  It will start on Tuesday October 3rd at 5pm.  You can find our Zoom link here it will be no more than an hour.  Come with questions and thoughts from the Sunday sermon!!

Baptisms

As a parish we are looking forward to celebrating baptisms towards the end of November! If you haven’t been baptised before and would like to talk about what that means and looks like, chat to one of the leaders after the service.

Giving

There are many in our parish who regularly give to the church through a Direct Debit to our bank account. If you do – firstly thank you so much for your generosity! It would be a great help though if you transferred across to using the Parish Giving Scheme. As charity rules, tax claims etc become more complicated it is increasingly becoming a big task to claim back the 20% we can get on top of your gift. Joining the Parish Giving Scheme makes it all so much easier for us – and easier for you too! Please speak to Zarine if you want to know more about it – or click the links!
